      articles.

      TOP STORIES:

      *  PART-TIMERS GO NATIONAL: Adjunct faculty members who attended
         a conference at San Jose City College this month believe that
         they finally have the momentum to organize to improve their
         salaries and working conditions.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i20/20a01201.htm

      *  DIVIDING THE PIE: Legislatures are expected to favor schools

         two-year college develops into a four-year institution.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i20/20a05101.htm

      *  FIPSE LOADS UP ON PORK: Congress has provided a third straight

      ALSO OF INTEREST TO COMMUNITY COLLEGES:

      *  MISMATCH IN PH.D. TRAINING: A survey shows that doctoral
         students want jobs that they probably will never get, and
         aren't trained for the jobs that are available.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i20/20a01401.htm

      *  LOGGING IN: Clifford Adelman says the proliferation of
         certification tests in information technology is an indication
         of a vast new educational enterprise that has developed
         largely outside traditional colleges.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i20/20a04401.htm

      *  10 YEARS OF THE A.D.A.: The landmark anti-bias law has
         significantly changed how colleges provide services and plan
         facilities for students with disabilities.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i20/20a02301.htm

      *  HELPING OUT: The Educational Testing Service is investing
         $15-million in the College Board's controversial commercial
         Web site.

      *  GRADING THE STATES: A report card that indicates how well
         states deliver higher education is having an impact on state
         legislative sessions this year.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i20/20a02302.htm

      *  TRANSITION WATCH: The Bush administration seems likely to
         agree, at least for now, to a request by Greg Woods to stay on
         as the head of the Education Department's Office of Student
         Financial Assistance.
